Christmas holiday is the high season for International Parental Child Abduction.


December 1 , 2013

ABP World Group Ltd.

Every year, during or after the Christmas holiday, ABP World Group are contacted by frantic parents who have had their child or children abducted while on holiday. ABP World Group provides advice on what to do if your children are abducted.

Very often there is a parent who has had children with someone of foreign origin and has allowed a holiday trip to that parent’s homeland. But it also happens that parents abduct the children when on holiday abroad as visitation sabotage.

Sometimes the abduction happens as quick as a lightning bolt and when the other parent returns home, the house is empty. All these forms are defined as international child abduction, and have a maximum penalty up to 3 years in prison.

Many parents ask us for advice on how to prevent one parent from taking the child abroad on holiday. However, this is very difficult to prevent when the courts in many countries often do not take parental concerns seriously.

Child abductors are not penalized in their homeland, since The Hague Convention on International Child Abduction is only a vehicle for the return of children and does not deal with punishment.

As few as 3 out of 10 children abducted return.

What should you do if your child is abducted?

  • If you have evidence that the child has been abducted or held back after vacation, immediately contact a lawyer who has expertise in international child abduction.

•You can also get guidance by contacting ABP World Group.
•You must report the situation to both the police and the Ministry of Justice. (Ministry responsible for any claim for return under the Hague Convention).
•Time is of utmost importance, so you must work fast and focused. It is best if the police have initiated a quick inquiry before the abductor can leave the country with the child/children.
•It is also important to act quickly in terms of The Hague Convention.

Which parent abducts children?

Sociopath is an American term which is very close to what we define as antisocial personality disorder. These parents lack conscience, guilt and remorse, they are aggressive and have little respect for the norms, laws and regulations.

The U.S. study emphasizes sociopaths or antisocial personality disorder, but also parents with narcissistic, paranoid and borderline personality disorder are high risk for child abduction and visitation sabotage.

The Faroe Islands, a nightmare of Parental Child Abduction – Miriam bortført til Færøerne

The Faroe Islands, a black hole of parental child abduction

Children were considered “treasures” in some peaceful, primitive societies where parents would not punish them physically and would strive to keep the child sheltered from all threats. This natural instinct of protecting one’s child seems to have been weakened by the transformation in human societies like the Faroe Islands. The Faroe Islands refuse to respect any international laws, or to take any legal steps to stop the rapid growing child abduction wave to the islands.

faroe_islands

The Faroe Islands, is one of the black holes of Parental Child Abduction, a real nightmare and a society that don`t respect anyone outside their community. We recommend people to not do any business with Faroe companies, or to go there on holidays until they stop breaking the human rights. Ban the islands until they start sending the abducted children back to their legal but devastated parents.

This is the latest Danish article about a child abducted from Denmark to The Faroe Islands:

Miriam bortført til Færøerne

Forældrenes skilsmisse var hård for lille Miriam. Men i det mindste boede både hendes mor og far i Hvide Sande, så hun kunne være tæt på dem begge. Men så tog ekskonen loven i egen hånd og flyttede med den toårige pige til Færøerne. Det har ændret alt.

 Faroe-Islands-Warning

I en by på Færøerne sidder en lille pige på nu fire år og savner en af de vigtigste personer i sit liv. Men der kan gå lang tid, inden Miriam igen ser sin far. 

Da hendes mor tog loven i egen hånd og bortførte hende til Færøerne, mistede datteren mere, end hun aner. Drypvis er hendes far ved at forsvinde ud af hendes liv. Ude og Hjemme har set nærmere på den ulyksalige skilsmisse. Flemming fulgte reglerne – og tabte. Greta brød dem – og vandt. Sådan føles det i hvert fald for Flemming Olesen, 32-årig elektriker fra Vestjylland.

– Det er håbløst. Jeg er i færd med at miste min datter, siger han. 

Fyldt med legetøj

Ude og Hjemme besøger ham i hans hus. Over fjernsynet hænger et stort foto af en smilende Miriam. En lyserød klapstol med dukke står klar ved siden af et velassorteret dukkehus. I et hjørne har Flemming parkeret det smarte trehjulede løbehjul Miriam fik i julegave. Ovenpå finder vi børneværelset, der er fyldt med legetøj, sirligt placeret på borde og hylder.

– Det er jo også hendes hjem, selv om hun ikke er her så tit, lyder det fra Flemming, der også har pakket gaver til sin datters fem års fødselsdag her i maj. De står på bordet klar til at blive sendt til Færøerne.

Løber tør for penge

– Jeg kæmper for at holde kontakten til Miriam. Men jeg kan godt se, hvilken vej, det går. Jeg tror min ekskone bevidst venter på, at jeg løber tør for penge, så jeg ikke længere har mulighed for at se Miriam, siger Flemming.

FAROE ISLANDS

Han havde sidst sin datter på besøg i påsken. Og før det i julen. Besøg som Rigsombuddet på Færøerne har bevilget ham. Men afstanden til Færøerne og prisen for at flyve er blevet et enormt problem. Hver tur derop og retur med datteren koster hver gang mellem 9.000 og 13.000 kroner. På et halvt år har Flemming brugt 50.000 kroner på at hente og bringe Miriam retur til sin mor. Og nu er kassen næsten tom.

– Jeg synes, det er forkert, at Miriam på den måde skal miste sin far. At jeg skal miste kontakten til min datter. Jeg har ikke mulighed for at blive ved med at hente hende. Jeg har ikke råd, siger Flemming, der står uforstående over for retssystemets adfærd.

Rejste til Færøerne

Sagen er nemlig, at hans eks-kone efter separationen i september 2011 i al hemmelighed besluttede at bortføre datteren til Færøerne. På det tidspunkt havde Flemming og Greta fælles forældremyndighed efter de danske regler. Greta havde flyttet adressen til et andet hus, så Miriam kunne vokse op med god kontakt til både mor og far. På trods af skilsmissen, så det ud til, at de to voksne havde fundet en holdbar vej for fremtiden.

Men Greta iværksatte nu en hemmelig plan. Den 17. september 2011 rejste hun med Mariam til Færøerne.  Tre dage senere fik Flemming et telefonopkald.

– Jeg har tænkt mig at blive heroppe sammen med Miriam, lød det fra Greta.

Allerede to dage efter – den 23. september – anlagde hun retssag på Færøerne for at få den fulde forældremyndighed over Miriam. Samtidig blev Miriams cpr-nummer lavet om til et færøsk cpr-nummer og hendes adresse registreret på Færøerne.

Belønnet for at bryde loven

Flemming var nu tvunget til at rejse frem og tilbage til Færørene for at hente og være sammen med sin datter. Flemmings advokat, Allan B. Møller fra Holstebro, kalder sagen en klar sag om børnebortførelse – en forbrydelse, der under normale omstændigheder kan give op til flere års fængsel.

– Hvis man bryder loven, skal det det have en konsekvens. Her får man i stedet en belønning. Det er højest udsædvanligt, lyder det fra advokaten.

Flemming reagerede dog som en rigtig vestjyde. Roligt og afbalanceret.

– Jeg ville ikke gøre noget, der kunne ødelægge mine muligheder for at få forældremyndigheden, siger han.

Tilsyneladende var det en god strategi. Dommen faldt den 2. juli 2012. Retten på Færørene vurderede nemlig, at Flemming skulle have den fulde forældremyndighed og at Miriam fremover skulle bo hos sin far.

Tabte ankesag

– Jeg var selvfølgelig lykkelig den dag. Jeg troede, at også Greta ville flytte med tilbage, så Miriam ville have både sin mor og far, fortæller Flemming. Men her forregnede han sig.

Greta ankede nemlig sagen, og kunne dermed beholde datteren på Færøerne indtil ankesagen. Og den gik anderledes. Her vurderede Østre Landsret, at Miriam nu havde boet så længe hos sin mor på Færøerne, at Greta skulle have forældremyndigheden.

– Jeg synes, det er grotesk. Hun bortfører vores datter til Færøerne. Og bliver belønnet for det.  Men vores datter bliver ramt. Hun mister kontakten til sin far, siger Flemming.

Greta har ikke ønsket at kommentere sagen.  Hun har dog mailet følgende:

”Jeg håber stadig, at Flemming holder kontakt til Miriam i fremtiden og jeg vil gøre mit bedste for, at det kan lade sig gøre.”

Summer Holiday Is Parental Child Abduction Season


Child Recovery Services

Tragically International Child Abduction has reached global epidemic proportions.  According to leading experts the increase in inter-racial marriages and relationships  will, in the future, lead to a significant rise in the number of children born to parents of different nationalities 

As is true for all relationships, a statistically significant number of these marriages or partnerships will also end in divorce.       All too often, following the breakup of a marriage, one of the parents will abduct a child of that relationship against the wishes of the other parent,  frequently removing them to a country where the child has probably never lived.    – This is called “International Parental Child Abduction”.

Although there are various civil remedies available to  parents of abducted children , the challenges they face are enormous, including first and foremost, locating  the child .

Unfortunately for the majority of targeted parents, the financial burden involved in recovery and litigation falls upon their shoulders. With tens of thousands of children abducted by parents each year, the reality is that too many of these children never come home.  ABP World Group is dedicated to assisting those parents who need help in locating, rescuing, and returning  their abducted child home safely.

Transnational Parental – Child Abduction: This is the Season to be Worried


Source: The Feminist Wire

By Anique John-Carter and Alanna Kennedy

Transnational abduction frequently conjures up images of children being trafficked from one part of the world to another for economic or sexual exploitation. However, evidence reveals that transnational child abduction incorporates much more than these common misunderstandings, which embody the traditional cliché of “Stranger Danger.”  Contrary to popular views – often fueled by an over-zealous media – in the United States familial child abduction far surpasses stranger abduction.

The language of parental child abduction is problematic, encompassing terms ranging from parental kidnapping and parental abduction to child snatching or child stealing, the latter two obviously more sensationalistic. We have found that while there is a[a1]  growing literature on the phenomenon of parental/familial child abduction, little attention is paid to the perspectives of children who are taken. There are memoirs by parents, especially mothers, whose children have been abducted by their fathers or other family members, but virtually no record written by the “victims” themselves. (And we use the term victim cautiously, given that we don’t actually know the subjective experiences of the children, even after they grow up to become adults.)

With estimates in the U.S. of 200,000 children abducted by a parent or other family member annually, and increased attention to the quagmire of transnational child abduction, kidnapping in the context of relationship dissolution/divorce is pertinent to children’s safety and wellbeing. And obviously, abduction should be a relevant factor in judicial remediation. One study found that the number of children abducted by a family member was 90 times larger than the number who are abducted by a stranger. The complexities that result from parental child abduction are magnified when considering the plethora of diverse norms surrounding culture, local and international laws, gender dynamics, and meanings of family.

The criminal definition of parental kidnapping refers to illegal removal or seizure of a child by a non-custodial family member from the child’s legal/custodial parent or guardian. One important difference between stranger kidnappings and family abductions is that in circumstances of family abductions, the children’s whereabouts may in fact be known, and – depending on their age – the children may not be aware that they have been kidnapped in a legal sense. This creates confusion and difficulty when trying to recover the children or re-orient the child in the original custodial home.

Most typically, transnational abduction of children, like domestic abduction, is far more likely to occur at the hands of a parent or guardian than a stranger. Contrary to what may be in the best interests of the child (or children, as siblings are taken together sometimes), abductions occur predominantly by family members who may snatch children for what they deem to be the “right” reasons, using justifications that range from very real threats of domestic violence to culturally-based family practices. As recently as December 2011, reported cases of international child abduction originating from the U.S. totaled more than 1,640 in a year. Additionally and unfortunately, these numbers are growing at a rate of 20% annually.

In a recent San Francisco Chronicle article, one of the world’s leading child abduction and kidnapping recovery agencies, ABP World Group, emphasized that the holiday season is one in which custodial parents or guardians should be especially cautious of the potential for family kidnapping.  Parents in particularly volatile relationships, situations of shared custody, or those in which one partner is from outside of the U.S. may be more vulnerable to transnational child abductions. Though several recent stories may be perceived as[n2]  “scare-mongering,” statistics generated by the U.S. Department of State have demonstrated that there is indeed valid cause for concern. In fiscal year 2009, there were 1,135 new cases of international parental abductions, a 50 percent increase compared to the previous reporting period. In the United States, it is estimated that there will be between 100,000 and 125,000 children criminally abducted between now and 2020.

The staple “law” regulating international child abduction is the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of Child Abduction. This is the dominant mechanism for pursuing legal remedies in international child abduction cases. The Convention is “a multilateral treaty, which seeks to protect children from the harmful effects of abduction and retention across international boundaries by providing a procedure to bring about their prompt return.” However, aspects of the Convention become problematic with regard to enforcement, which is typically non-transferable across international borders. Additionally, many nations party to the convention do not necessarily conform to it. Some countries, such as Japan, have never returned a child back to the country of origin. The United Nations, as a partner to the Hague Convention, does little in the way of providing aid or relief in child abduction cases. Although the UN Declaration on the Rights of the Child is said to promote the interests of children, it fails to provide legal remediation.

Current developments are in the works. The U.S. Department of State has recently created the Hague Convention Attorney Network that recruits lawyers to help find and incorporate personnel and resources in an attempt to reduce transnational child abduction originating from the United States. This will hopefully be a means to bridge the gap between national and transnational aspects of law enforcement and legal remediation. Although not a worldwide solution, it brings to light the urgent issue of parental abduction. As of 2008, The Hague had evaluated the performance of parties to the Convention, concludingthat the U.S. has both received and originated more applications for the return of abducted children than any other contracting state.

The issue of transnational child abduction is especially important in the U.S., a society in which marriages continue to dissolve at a high rate. The precarious situations in which children are placed can produce psychological and social problems that may last a lifetime. The Hague Convention’s 2008 evaluation of U.S. progress on transnational child abduction discloses that familial abductors are typically women. In many of these cases, women are fleeing environments where abuse has or is taking place. Naturally,[n3]  this begs a further critique of instability in family environments, inadequate resources for women, and a legal system that cannot adequately address the best interests of women and children. These deficiencies are especially glaring when men (especially abusive men) remove their children from the country.

Giving the alarming findings from studies on long-term effects of abduction on children as well as the increased ease with which people move across international borders, we predict that this issue will increase in importance as it widens in scope. Within the current legal system, which seems regularly to slash resources for women and children, it is imperative that we understand and work to ameliorate the potentially devastating personal and familial impact of parental child abduction. At the same time, we must attempt to mitigate the ripple effects caused throughout society as families fracture and legal confusion ensues.

‘Tis the season to be very wary indeed.
